Subj: Glaswegian hangover
I just typed in TYSka orchestra and it sent me here.
I like the groovy homepage cover. I like the comments page being fresh. will inspect site. summary to follow.
I am in a quiet sidestreet in Manchester Uk, inbetween the hangover and the kids making a racket on the street outside. A great place to be.
So, well done for nearing of books you've read and their plots. like the sound of those welding shop diaries. Not enough books about shopfloor chaos. (There was a BBC tv-only film from the 70s starring Billy Connelly, it was called Elephant's Graveyard and featured two guys forgoing shifts in the shipyards to go drinking cheap wine in a nearby glen. Baffle an old Scot with this, should you meet one)
Tokio huh? (Are you there now, or in SF? RTFM, I suppose) Never been. Must find wealthy racey Japanese woman. (er, Yoko, fancy a date?)
Only left the UK 4 times in my life. Paris. Amsterdam. Barcelona. (Bit of a city theme there) and Nu Zillun's South Island. Does four hours in old Hong Kong airport count? I spent a while working in Manchester's Chinese quarter as a carpark grunt. Very very funny times, usually in broken English.
I used to hang about sometimes in Oxford, initially with an optemitrist(?) chick, 84-, The best time to visit the college exteriors/cloisters was very +early morn. Hauntingly beautiful. Especially after a night dodging downtown beer monsters +and Italian school parties.
Aaah. Back to the here and now. Between McJobs. Just finished on Commonwealth +Games. 72 nations. What a hoot. Especially the woman who sculpted a table sized replica of the stadium made from chocolate. Ho-hum. Gee, grandad, what did you do in the infoglut wars? I knew when to stop, son. Sometimes.
